Repti-sand is nothing but trouble mate people have had luck with all sorts of sands but at the end of the day I don't even like to risk impaction. Invest 5-20 on slate tile or 5 on some lino or keep buying bags of sand? and sand just harbours bacteria gives a nice place for feeders to hide and holds a smell if not cleaned constantly.

I use slate tile myself. Looks professional, keeps my BDs nails trim and is easy to clean.

your looking for 105-110F on highest basking spot. Stick in a 40W household bulb just for lighting if necessary or buy a light/heat bulb instead of a ceramic.

I cleaned my rocks with 10% bleach solution, wash thoroughly, let it air and then bake for best results.
